Tapas / Small Plates
Those behind Socialē by Villa Rosa have been offering consistently great food and wine from both B.C. and Italy for more than 15 years in Penticton. That food, which includes fresh, local produce, and wine complements the atmosphere and makes for an unforgettable experience.

Socialē, which is Okanagan family owned, is the cousin of Villa Rosa Ristorante, which is on hiatus. The soul of that restaurant will live on through Socialē. The Italian wine bar and coffee house has taken the best from Villa Rosa Ristorante and turned it into something even more unique and special.

Socialē is located at 950 Lakeshore Dr. W., in Penticton, mere steps from Okanagan Lake Beach.

    This is one of our favourite fun restaurants. So much to love. The location and view are perfect. Many diverse tapas - fresh, flavourful food, and amazing service. So much to enjoy! The fresh baked baguette with black garlic butter, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar is made fresh daily and melts in your mouth. The beet salad and the mushroom ravioli are two of my favourites - so yummy! My husband loves the calabrian chili prawns and the meatballs. Intriguing cocktails and great wine. They have a fabulous Tappy Hour on a daily basis!

    Great food and honest advice from the servers. It was a bit cold due to the in and out of patrons and also servers to the patio. My only complaint is make it a bit warmer; maybe I ask for a table further from he doors.

    This is one of my "go to" restaurants. Last night we tried the dinner special and it did not disappoint! The lasagna was outstanding with just the right amount of sauce, cheese and meat. Literally, it melted in my mouth! I usually always have leftovers to take home but I ate the whole thing! Can't wait to go back. Oh, and on Wednesday's bottles of wine are 1/2 price. Excellent deal and if you don't drink it all you can take the remainder home. Can't wait to go back. Thanks to Tyler and his team for excellent service, food, atmosphere and value!!

    We had dinner and wine before the Bryan Adams concert and had a wonderful time at Sociale. The food was delicious! We shared some small plates and it was plenty for 2 people. We had the meatballs, burrata with endive and figs and the beef carpacio. The Empress Gin drink was beautiful, flavorful and elegant. The Pinot Noir from Blasted Church was a great surprise too! Great service and a great value as they offered 20% the bill for concert goers. Can't wait to go back soon!

    Well organized wine list, veal scallopini (parmagiana) was tasty & good size portion. Inside area can get a bit noisy when full but that's part of the character? Lots of servers on an August Saturday evening.

    Very disappointing meal and experience. I’ve been to Villa Rosa in the past and expected similar quality dishes but it was far from it. Our server made errors in our ordering since English was not her first language. We wanted to order some sort of bread as a starter but they only had garlic toast. So we started with that which turned out to be 4 very small pieces of thin crusty bread which were more comparable to croutons. I don’t believe our server was able to fully explain what we were receiving due to the language barrier. My meal was the CAVATAPPI AL FORNO and it was disappointing. The chicken was grilled to the driest piece of chicken I think I have ever had in a restaurant. The pork belly was simply little pieces of crispy bacon. Another meal my table had were the meatballs. They were the bland and tasteless. The highlight was the house red wine. A little cheap, a little smooth and kinda deadened my feelings of disappointment over the food and service. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Always a treat to visit when we are in Penticton alone or with friends. Love the food, drink & personal service. Find inside a bit loud (hearing aid user) but unfortunately Smokey weather prevented our usual outside experience.
